I've been on cloud nine all day, because the new local telephone directory arrived and the cover features four of my photographs!

' . substr('//www.hitsession.com/images/phonebook.jpg', strrpos('//www.hitsession.com/images/phonebook.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

My photos were selected for the cover because I work for my county's Chamber of Commerce, and the local phone book rep asked really nice for some local photographs. I obliged, as I saw this as a rare marketing opportunity for me.

I made sure they included my bio inside the book, and they did a very nice job.

If they ask for more photos next year, should I ask them for payment? If so, how much?

Thanks for fixing the link, Russell. While you were doing that, I resized the scan and put the image directly in my post.

The local phone book cover here is always a photo from a customer. They run a contest for it every year. They don't pay for the photo though. Since your phone company is asking you for photos, they might compensate you a bit, but I wouldn't expect them to put up much money.

Instead of cash, ask for a free listing under "Photographers"...Flo
